Afrocentric Homeschoolers Association is a nonprofit resource for homeschooling families (and individual teens) everywhere in the world which are engaging in Afrocentric, Africentric, Black-oriented, Black-positive, African, African American or pro-Black education.

Based in Ontario, Canada, AHA has been operating since 1996. Our colors are purple (for the richness of our heritage), and yellow (for the sun in our skin and lives). Membership is free.

AHA is extremely grateful for the support of the following:
Little Scholars (book donations)
